to agree on, before it seemed like he was going to side with hamas, with the palestinians. somehow he came through and came through, first of all, the most important thing he did is declared that the egypt israeli peace treaty or treaty in effect and strong. that really told the world that egypt is going to continue to be a good ally. he is getting pushback from his people because he declared himself the czar or pharaoh or whatever once in power. but for me, egypt is the most important piece of the pozle in the middle east -- pozle in the middle east. >> dana: this really saddened me. people in egypt, those who participated in the arab spring fought for self-determination. they wanted to trust their government and be part of it. morsi said all that you fought for and all we went through, forget it. i will be the new mubarak basically. he isn't mubarak. but then our state department, we have to issue a condemnation, but it was weak, because we need to work with him because of what eric said. >> kimberly: any difference between mubarak and morsi? >> brian: yeah! mubarak had an understanding

a diplomatic path. and will they open up a diplo t diplomatic path? and the question for the hamas group is will they accept israel? we don't know that. i would simply say that's now one of the half dozen fault lines out there in the middle east. you've got syria, the iranian nuclear thing, the constitutional struggle with an egypt. you potentially have jordan getting in the mix. plus you've now got the oldest of the issues, the israel israeli/palestinian issue. this is facing barack obama at a time he wants to do more in asia, deal with the fiscal cliff. welcome to your second term. >> a lot to do. richard haa ss. >> how did jerry adams do it? how did the irish terrorists as they were called before the peace deal, how did they not only enforce the peace but then turn to their own bad elements and say, step out of line, and we're going to crush you. >> one was, they couldn't shoot their way to power. tony blair, the irish prime minister gave them a political path that was legitimate. there was a potential there for compromise. they had discipline in their own ranks. >> how did they do th
spring, the syria war, and now this confrontation between israel and hamas that somehow kind of brought us back to the middle east that we used the to know the arabs and israelis going at it and egypt being -- [inaudible] but right before that iran saw its fortunes decline, its popularity in the arab streets declined because of the arab spring, and then the syrian situation introduced a very, very important element, almost sectarian element, that eroded iranian influence in the region and the projection of iranian power hit a brick wall with that. so all of this, of course, goes into the mix of what iran is thinking. and this is one of the reasons. this is a good time to start negotiating with iran as its reach in the middle east seems to be not what it used to be, it's not as soft power, superpower, nor is it a hard power superpower in the renal payoff the situation -- in the region because of the situation in lebanon and syria. p lebanon is really the coming disaster, and syria is the disaster that we're dealing with right now. so, of course, all of this will go on. and if i were amer

city the cleanup from the past two weeks of violence continues. within hours of the cease-fire hamas had workers cleaning up the destruction. this is not only part of the reconstruction effort but also hamas showing palestinians it is in firm control and in charge of gaza. both israel and hamas have sent representatives to egypt to continue discussions about the cease-fire agreement. with israeli election coming up in a few months it is unlikely much will get done, martha. martha: thank you very much. con nor powell reporting in gas say, if you thought the fight for the health care law was over, supreme court breathing new life into a new legal challenge. we'll talk to the principle players in this case. martha: weighing for the details on the showdown between ambassador susan rice and lawmakers meeting on capitol hill. big questions were raised on her controversial comments on the libyan terror attack. we'll have developments from the meeting as they come through. we'll be back on "america's newsroom" [ malannouncer ] it'that time of year again. time for cii price rewind. because yo
israel and hamas that somehow brought us back to the middle east that we used to know, the israelis and the arabs going at it and egypt. but right before that iran saw its for turns decline. its popularity in the arab streets declined because of the arab spring, and then the syrian situation has introduced some very, very important elements, almost sectarian element that declined -- that eroded iranian influence in the region and the projection of the iranian power hit a brick wall with that. so all of this of course closed into the mix of what iran is thinking. and this is one of the reasons this is a good time to start negotiating with iran. as its reach in the middle east seems to be not what it used to be, are a superpower, nor is it a hard power superpower in the region because of the situation in lebanon and in syria. lebanon is really the coming disaster and syria is the disaster that we're dealing with right now. so of course all of this will go in and if i were american and while the american negotiators i would say, this is exactly the right time to go into this. the presi
-fire between hamas and israel. what do you think about the role that he played? will the cease-fire last? >> that, nobody knows. i don't think any questions have been resolved in the long run in gaza. both sides have held off, both sides' supporters claim they did what had to be done. they both reserved the right to carry on doing it in the future. so i think it's very, very unclear what's going to be happening in gaza other than i think long-lasting harmony is extremely unlikely. >> quickly to you, robin, is that cease-fire going to last? >> i think there's greater potential for movement on the peace process than any time in recent history because there's arab governments in the region including in egypt that want to focus on the broader domestic issue, whether it's 40% unemployment among young people, creating the kind of solutions that led to these -- to the issues that led to the uprisings in the first place. so there's enormous pressure to look domestically. there's less interest in promoting or energizing the arab-israeli conflict than any time i can remember, and i've been coverin
that rebellion centered in the city of hamas and killed, according to the claims of the regimes, 38,000 people in a 27-day campaign in the months of february in 1982. the people felt if they back off, they would be punished because in the 80s, after 82, the next following years, they punishedded them collectively, about 80,000 forcibly disappeared people whose files are still not closed, and thousands and thousands of prisoners of conscious. the syrians felt they have to continue at any cost. when help doesn't come, the idea of defense formed in the movement itself, and so those soldiers defecting from the army started creating small groups to defend, in fact, initially what they called the peacefulness of the revolution, and so they went around buildings because that's where snipers used to shoot peaceful protesters, but as an author said, defense is the first act of war. what happened is that in order to achieve this defense of civilians, the small groups, which increasingly also became joined by civilians who took up arms to defend the towns, families, and suburbs, started, actually, engagi

. they don't see the peace process going anywhere. they see hamas gaining the upper hand with the strategy of confronting israel militarily, refusing to recognize the state of israel, they recognize the state of israel and say we've got nothing for this in all of the year of negotiation. we're going a different route. >> abbas goes to the u.n. is it lookly they would get enhanced status? >> it is. >> it is? >> you already see some of the arab -- some of the european allies of the united states debating this. france indicated it's likely to support this move. britain is debating it. you have, you know, the liberal democrats saying, yes, we have to support this. the conservatives saying, no, we've got to stand with the united states, find a lot of countries in that dilemma. at the end of the day you'll see a majority of countries, two-thirds, supporting a state of palestine and okay, they paid the price. you know, they tried to topple abbas. abbas has said, fine, i'll invite netanyahu here to ramallah, sit him down in the office and hand him the keys. what does he mean by that? he means you
